Tampa International Airport is looking for 100 permanent volunteers to greet passengers upon arrival at the airport.
As well as offering airport-related advice, they will be on hand to provide tourism information, brochures, maps and directions.
Four new Tourism Information Centres are being constructed in the baggage reclaim area as part of the airport’s $30 million Main Terminal Modernisation project, which also includes upgrades to ticketing areas and airport signage.
In exchange for a six-month commitment to volunteer at least one four-hour shift per week, volunteers will receive free airport parking and access to special ‘thank you’ events during the year.
Tampa International Airport’s announcement of its intention to appoint volunteers follows London Heathrow’s drive to employ 1,000 volunteers in time for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
